Re: Travels and Adventures of "Curt's Dream" a True Grit design-The Great Loop

Hope you can find places to stop if weather gets iffy.Windy app is a good one to have.We keep eye on that for boaters crossing Lake of the Woods.Canada might open to non-essentuals on Aug 9 th.But I'm not holding my breath-been disappointed too many times.

Re: What did you do with your Glen-L this week?

Chug is just sitting in her spot tied to the dock.The rear enclosure zippers are coming apart so did some sewing with needle and Spiderwire Muskie braid for thread.Don't get out much when guests are in cabins.Mom's got a few bunches that brave the big open water to get up here. :D

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Make sure you're using bunks on trailer.Hate for one of those rollers to pop a hole when you hit a hole.

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

I wouldn't want to be the one that puts the first scratch on her.You might have to hire "OLE OLSON" from Ole's boat scratching service.

I'm bored-no boats to scratch.

Re: Bob from Battle Ground wa.

I would extend the boat a couple of feet.Gets a little cramped with larger folks.Is a fun little boat tho.I couldn't get the 3/8 ply to bend around bow so went with 2 layers of 1/4 over all.Have fun and show lots of pics :D

Re: Acrylic Window Installation

You could enclose glass edge in frames larger than your window openings.Mount on outside,put hinges on top of frames-allowing to be opened for ventalation.Maybe screens inside to keep bugs from getting in. :D

Re: Acrylic Window Installation

I tried to put plexi in "Chug".By the time I got it in,it was so scratched up so went with tinted safety glass cut by the seller(rv dealer)Was more spendy(100 bucks a pop)but worth it.You got to install so wave won't push it out if you get into a storm . :D

Re: mystery motor problem

Now I got another problem:Power trim motor doesn't go more than halfway up.Had it down at shop and they can't figure it out either.Trying to add more lube gets me nowhere.Follow advise on Youtube to fill, but still doesn't move.Doesn't leak fluid so no cracks anywhere.Motor whines-just doesn't pump....
